Is my bike ok?

Sounds like its cavitating. Like the MC itself is not bled.

If you hold your finger over the hole for the brake bolt (directly at the MC) will it make pressure? If yes you probably don't need a kit.

Motorcycle brakes are inherently difficult to bleed. The MC moves such a small amount of fluid and air doesn't like to float down hill like your need it to.

When I bleed motorcycle brakes I use a pump type oil can with a hose connected to the bleeder at the caliper and pump the fluid backwards through the system. Once it fills the reservoir you're done. All fluid, no air, go ride.

Good luck.
